Do you have any websites bookmarked that you find yourself running back to again and again for eye candy and inspiration? Jolby is one of those sites for me. As a designer and illustrator myself, I’m always looking for great art to inspire me and spark an idea. I found this site a few months ago on Grain Edit, one of my favorite design resources.
A collaboration of the talents of Josh Kenyon & Colby Nichols, Jolby is a design and illustration studio based in Portland, Oregon. Their style is playful, light and fun and I can’t help but love it. They write that their two main goals when they approach a project are to “tell a memorable story” and “make people smile”. Well, my friends, you have done it again and again. I particularly liked their immensely clever Ping Pong Legends Mural. If you love these illustrations as much as I think you will, check out their Etsy store to buy prints, posters, cards and tshirts. Their illustrations would be perfect for kids rooms, not to mention my office.
